SL-Class New Generation SL

2016 SL-Class New Generation SL

Elegance meets sportiness.

The Mercedes-Benz SL is the top performer in the widest variety of disciplines: an elegant roadster for relaxed, comfortable cruising or a dynamic coupé for sporty cornering. More powerful engines, the automatic transmission 9G-TRONIC, DYNAMIC SELECT with five transmission modes and Active Body Control ABC with the curve tilting function all take the legend to a new dynamic level.

The high suitability for everyday use has been enhanced with the hard top, which can now be operated at up to 40 km/h, and the automatic boot separator. Visually the front end in particular has been made significantly sportier. As a result the bonnet, bumper and headlamps, among other features, are all new.

New appearance for the athletic aesthete.

The Mercedes-Benz SL has always been athletic and aesthetic at the same time. Now the designers have worked on bringing these characteristics even more to the fore. A particularly eye-catching feature is the revised front end of the new edition of the SL: for its new appearance, traditional elements have been enhanced in an innovative and unmistakable manner. Inspiration came from the legendary 300 SL Panamericana racing car with its steeply raked radiator grille. This extends downwards, thus creating a completely individual “face” for the SL within the Mercedes-Benz model range. The grille is executed as the diamond radiator grille as standard. The sculpted shape of the radiator grille harmonises perfectly with the now standard AMG bodystyling with front apron in an A-wing design, which features a front splitter in the vehicle colour.
